Spread the peanut butter mixture in a thin layer on a large plate. Place the balls evenly spaced on top of the peanut butter and then press them down lightly with another large plate. After about 30 minutes, remove the top plate and use a small spoon to gently roll each ball around in the peanut butter mixture until it is well coated. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container for up to two weeks.  These freezes very well too so don’t worry if you have leftovers!

One of the most popular desserts in America is the peanut butter ball. They are quick and easy to make and they are perfect for any occasion. If you want to surprise your friends or family, then this is a great recipe to use! The best thing about these balls is that they require only two ingredients, which makes them very simple to make.

Plus, they’re so delicious that even if you don’t like peanut butter, chances are you will enjoy this dessert because it tastes so good! As long as you have some unsalted peanuts and some confectioner’s sugar on hand, these peanut butter balls can be made in just a few minutes.

In fact, many people make them while they watch TV at night before going to bed or during commercial breaks while watching their favorite show. I’m sure by now you are wondering what makes them so good!

Well, there are two reasons why these peanut butter balls taste amazing: one is the freshness of the ingredients and the second reason is how much flavor goes into every single bite. If you’ve ever tried cooking with store-bought confectioners’ sugar before, then you know that it doesn’t taste nearly as sweet as freshly-made confectioners’ sugar does. And when combined with freshly ground peanut butter from a high-quality grocery store such as Gelson’s Market®, well let’s just say your tastebuds won’t be disappointed!


I hope that you have enjoyed this recipe and found a treat for your upcoming holiday parties.
